Adding Assets Manually

This article describes how to add new assets in Secureworks® Taegis™ VDR manually.

You can add assets manually in VDR by going to the Websites or Servers section and selecting the + button at the top right corner of the page. A modal appears that allows you to configure the new asset using the following parameters (menus differ slightly for Websites and Servers):

Manually Add Assets

Manually Add Assets

Add a New Website Menu

Add a New Server Menu

Once you have entered the information in the modal, select the Add button to begin validating the newly created asset. If the validation process is successful the Scan Now option will appear, allowing you to manually launch a scan.

During the verification process, the asset will show a Validate icon in the Status column.

Failure to validate is generally caused by three main problems:

Select the icon to request a re-validation of the asset.


If the validation process is successful, the Scan Now option appears, allowing you to manually launch a scan. If you do not see Scan Now and only the Validate option appears, it is an indicator that the web application endpoint is not providing a valid HTTP response.

Add assets using bulk import by navigating to the Websites or Servers section and following these steps:

  1. Edge Service — Specify whether your assets should be reached through an installed Edge Service or through the Internet (see Reaching Firewalled & Internal Assets).
  2. Tags — Select the tags to be associated with the new assets.
  3. Select Choose File to browse to a CSV file containing a list of assets (IPs, hostnames, or websites) to be imported in bulk. The CSV file should be UTF-8 encoded and RFC-4180 formatted in a single column (additional columns will be ignored) containing a list of IPs, hostnames, or websites, each on their own line.
  4. Once the CSV file is ready to be imported, select Submit to start the import process.

A message in the bottom left corner indicates that the import process has started.

Assets will soon begin appearing in the respective Websites and/or Servers section.

Once the import process is complete, a message in the bottom left corner indicates "Import Completed."
